Alisson drops hint he could be at Liverpool long-term

After winning a league title after so long, there is always a long exhale. From fans, players, the club. It was euphoria mixed with relief; we'd finally won it again.

But, in Liverpool's case, it's very different. Liverpool haven't just won the league, we've blown away all challengers, picked up 196 points across the last two seasons, still hold the Champions League and won the World Club Cup back in December.

Jurgen Klopp and his team have officially put us 'back on our bloody perch' that Alex Ferguson spent 25 years knocking us off of.

So from here on out, we're no longer plucky upstarts; that sleeping giant that is attempting to wake up. We're the level that every club looks to reach. And bloody hell, have we set the target high.

The concern now, as expressed so... eloquently by Andy Gray on Tuesday, is that some of our more senior stars might now look to new challenges, having won - quite literally - the lot at Anfield.

Thankfully, it sounds like the best goalie in the world isn't going anywhere anytime soon though, after an interview he gave with the club's official website.

Published this morning, when asked about his emotional attachment to LFC, Alisson said: "At this moment it means everything.

"The biggest part of my achievements in football I achieved for this club, through this club, individual and my teammates, so it means a lot to me and my family.

"Since we arrived here we could feel that it's a different club, a club who treats you as a family and can give you all the support that you need to play football, to stay focused on playing football.

"So, we are comfortable here. We love being here. We also love the warmth that we receive from the supporters, they are part of this family as well."

The Brazilian has only been at Anfield for two seasons, but has firmly established himself as the best in the world. He's played less than 90 games for us, keeping 44 clean sheets.

And at just 27 year of age he has yet to reach his peak, meaning Liverpool could potentially have one of the world's best players at the club for the best part of a decade at his best.
